The deadline for fans who bought tickets to the "Battle of the Piney Woods" last year to renew their same seats at Reliant Stadium for this year's game with Stephen F. Austin is Friday June 28.

By ordering now, fans can reserve their seats for the 86th meeting of the Bearkats and the Lumberjacks before the general public has a chance to purchase them.

Renewing "Battle of the Piney Woods" tickets is simple. Just call (936) 294-1729 or long in to "My Bearkat Account" on .

"More than two-thirds of the 26,000 fans at Reliant Stadium were wearing Bearkat orange last year," Sam Houston head coach Willie Fritz said. "That made a huge difference for our football team."
